The President met again with the Dalai Lama today. This always pisses China off, but who cares. Anyways, I was surprised to read this: the President reiterated the U.S. position that Tibet is part of the People’s Republic of China and that the United States does not support Tibet independence. I always thought that the U.S.'s position was pro-Tibetan. Is this just the US's position since the Obama Administration or has the U.S.'s position always been that way?
